    Default My Business trip to the far East of Russia!

    I'm a little late on posting this but hey, better late then never!

    As some of you may already know, I'm currently half way around the world in Komsomolsk-Na-Amur Russia for work. Unfortunately I can't post any pictures of my work, but I can tell you that I am currently working for Sukhoi and helping them produce the Sukhoi SuperJet 100. I work just at their engine shop, finalyzing the engine before they go on the aircraft.

    I left Ottawa on November 9th of this year. My flight schedual was a hectic one to say the least

    Ottawa - Toronto 45min
    Toronto - Amsterdam 8hrs
    Amsterdam - Moscow 3hrs
    Moscow - Khabarosvk 8.5hrs

    Then a 6 hours taxi ride to Komsomolsk-Na-Amur, almost 3 days of traveling with the flight hours and waiting time in between flights. I left friday afternoon and got to my hotel Sunday morning Ottawa local time.

    I must say the taxi ride up here was an eye opener. Being as my first trip up here I didn't know what to expect. As some of you already some car crash videos from Russia on Youtube. Well they do drive just as crazy in real as they do in the videos. What was even more of an eye opener during the taxi ride, is seeing the car wrecks on the side of the highway witch have stayed there for months and months, all they did was remove the bodies. No pics of the way up here from the airport my phone died and so did my camera.

    So without further a due heres a couple pics of this wonderful city. I don't have much pics for now but I will try and go out on saturday and snap some more.










    So far its been a crazy experience, clubs close at 6. You can buy alcohol pretty much anywhere. The women are sexy as hell (most of them). I'll try to get more pics of some. 3-4$ canadian can get you a good enough meal better then mcdonalds.

    comment away folks

    I learn't a little bit of russian enough to get me by, I work with a couple more canadians from quebec. So I have a couple good friends that speak very good english so they mostly translate when people want to talk to me or what not. But google has helped me out a lot on a couple dinner dates lol

    So here is more pics of around the city and a couple people that I have met from ether work or just going out to night clubs.






    Dinner and Shisha why not?


    Just a Typical monday night with a couple girlies. Needless to say they handle their alcohol like a boss. Better then the Russian men do from my experience of drinking with them.


    The Girlies in question,


    Just a good old time!


    Some more girlies i met last night. Not a single word of english. Thank you google.



    Walked around town and saw this coming out of the taxi.
    Theres a lot of RHD here since, they are so close to Japan. But that doesn't mean its cheap for them. It's almost double what we would usually pay in Canada to import one. As well i was told if you purchase one thats turbo charged for instance, theres a lot of fees and taxes you have to pay.



    Anyways thats enough for tonight, but I will try and post more pics of the city tomorrow.

    Fortunately I come back during the summer around April. Today it wasn't as cold it usually is. Its roughly -32 right now, but it goes all the way down to -45 C.
    During the summer its the opposite, it gets extremely hot, +35/40 C.
